Flynn, meanwhile, was one of the president's closest advisers throughout the campaign and the transition, frequently traveling on his plane.

Donald Trump visiting Trump International Golf Links on June 25, 2016 in Aberdeen, Scotland. And he said Paul Manafort, who ran Trump's campaign for months, "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time".

Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed - for the first time publicly - that the FBI was investigating "the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election" and their possible connection to Trump's presidential campaign. However, Trump was particularly critical of President Obama's commitment to playing golf, and so now he looks somewhat hypocritical in retrospect. The figure is not certain because the White House rarely confirms when Trump is golfing.

He also appeared on Sirius XM radio's Wilkow Majority to say that he felt he was being maligned in the hearings but was "suited up and ready for combat". If it is indeed his ninth golf outing, that's a rate of once every 6.4 days.

Since taking office, however, Trump, an avid golfer who is reportedly a better player than his predecessor, has not shied away from his favourite pastime.

President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe exchange a high five at Trump National Golf Club on February 11. "He played more golf previous year than Tiger Woods", Trump said of Obama at a December 2016 rally in MI. Trump and Abe left the club after playing 18 holes at about 1:30 p.m.

The White House did not disclose whether Trump played golf over the weekend, but a photo posted on Twitter by Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy, a friend of the president, showed Trump wearing a golfing glove and posing with two others at the club.

Spicer then cited something Trump suggested earlier in the day on Twitter - claiming, without presenting evidence, that the DNC did not let the Federal Bureau of Investigation look at its server and that Hillary Clinton's campaign colluded with a Russian official.

A prime example came when Trump played golf with Rory McIlroy ahead of his comeback to the PGA Tour.

Dearborn's aide, John Mashburn, conducts a weekly conference call with the advisers, who remain in constant contact with the White House. Also, some Cabinet secretaries have been more welcoming of their White House liaisons.
